Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

Me and Jo, @angeloftheforth on Instagram & Facebook, are so looking forward to attending Edinburgh Yarn Festival from 21st to 23rd March. We’ll be bringing a range of Woolly project & notions bags, and Woolly badges made from offcuts. We’ll also be launching the new Save the Willow design, highlighting the effects of climate change on Scottish alpine plants.

If you’re coming along, please pop by, say hello and show us what you’ve bought, wearing, knitting or crocheting. We love chatting about all things woolly!

Finally and most importantly, everyone is welcome at Woolly Originals as long as you welcome everyone.

Thank you. x




Knitters Flocking to Edinburgh

By our Arts correspondent

Today we interviewed Sarah Clarkson of Woolly Originals about her plans for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival in March 2019.

“It’s so exciting,” Sarah shrieked loudly. “I can’t wait to meet all the amazing knitters and crocheters from all over the world.”

Once our reporter’s ears had recovered, she asked about any specific plans Sarah had for the Festival which takes place in her home city.

“Well, I’ll be bringing a range of project & notions bags in my current Woolly designs, including the Icelandic-inspired Lava Landscape, the recent Scott Monument, and a very exciting new colourway for my Heritage Orchard design. But, most excitingly of all, I’ll be launching a new design that highlights the impact of climate change on Scottish alpine plants.”

Sarah finished the interview by expressing her thanks to the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh for their help with researching her latest design.

Good luck, Sarah and EYF!
